Travel Collection by Peg and Awl

Refreshed, just in time for adventure!

As we near the end of 2018, we find ourselves completely transformed – all styles of all of our bags are now available with vegetable-tanned leather which pairs gloriously with our waxed canvas! Have a look at our Travel Collection which includes the Dopp Case, Daybag, Journey Bag and Weekender, along with our new Reader Bag that has been altogether rearranged!

The Mini Sendak Artist Roll in Moss by Peg and Awl

You have asked and we have answered!

Our ever-faithful Sendak Artist Tool Roll is now available in Moss. The Sendak has become a staple in our lives, and as we soak up the last few warm days of the year we are taking ours with us on hikes in the woods and strolls through the old city streets of Philadelphia. This new color in the Sendak family is quickly becoming one of our favorites!

We have also added a new notebook to accompany the Mini Sendak – the Anselm Landscape Journal. Inspired by Anselm Kiefer’s hand bound sketch books, this coverless notebook fits perfectly into our Mini Sendak and can also help protect pen nibs and paint brushes. As with so many other of our Peg and Awl treasures, we first made this for ourselves and now we make them for everyone. Enjoy!

The Anna Atkins Collection by Peg and Awl

Our new collection, inspired by the work of Anna Atkins (1799-1871).
A collaboration with the New York Public Library.

Worlds open up. Always. A constant flurry of curious human beings, their voices quite muffled from the years gone by, drift my way. I hadn’t heard the name Anna Atkins until the New York Public Library asked us to collaborate on a collection of treasures inspired by her work. I’ve been wrapped up in her ever since.

Anna Atkins was the first person to use photography to illustrate a book. Note – NOT the first woman, but the first human! She was an incredible illustrator and had illustrated some books for her father, but the discovery of Cyanotypes sent her into a new obsession. She began making photographic images of her extensive seaweed collection in 1843. She created thousands of cyanotypes and sent them to libraries and other institutions in the mid-1800s for their collections – many of which remain today, including, of course, the collection at the New York Public Library!

If you can make it to the New York City, stop in and see the exhibit!

All Black Bags by Peg and Awl

It’s October!

We are so happy to present our All Black Collection in this most fitting month of October. Every bag we make will now be available in locally-sourced black waxed canvas with black vegetable-tanned leather!

Here we are again, the time of year that brings into focus the meeting of polar opposites – the dark-bright, the absurd and the pragmatic and that thin veil betwixt life and death. In preparation for the launch of our All Black Bag Collection, I set out into the woods with my friend Katie in an attempt to wrangle a fitting photograph of our ever-practical bags. Draped in random antique garments and lured into the abandoned past lives of others, we Frankensteined the driftless bits, the ruins, and ourselves and came face to face with the absurd.

Join us in the celebration of Autumn, our very favourite time of year. Throw an all black bag over your shoulder and head straight for adventure! Who knows what you will find...
